    To prevent movement, you should find a spot where you can screw the nut against the face of the IC. Then you can jam the nuts together and the only direction it can move is if it falls out. It's like a mini BOV !

    No the 3/16" hole is to insert the Presta into the Intercooler. Actual size of the hole that air passes through the Presta Valve may be 1/16" or less, not big at all, just enough to let air with goo get by. I have attached a few photos to show the size of the valve and in this case the Valve has a removable core (for filling with Sealant) when used in a "Tubeless" system. This is what I have used.

    Make me nervous reading discussions like this ;-) Anyway, I'm at around 95,000 miles now (2014 / purchased new) and either I've been lucky or I've done everything right so far. Mine still runs very strong and so far I haven't had any engine problems other than a coolant leak near the turbo after a multi hour highway drive with outside temps over 100 F (cooling fans race and are very loud in that case ;-)). I don't do anything special. I added the tiny weep hole in the CAC maybe 40k miles ago (don't remember when exactly). I have used Pennzoil Platinum synthetic oil since the first oil change and I change it around 4k miles. I occasionally run some fuel injector cleaner in the tank (not often, only really did it a few times but I should do it more often). Mix of highway and back road driving to/from work and some long highway trips on vacation. I don't baby it, but I also don't beat it (I don't like to rev the engine too high, but now and then wind it up to 5k or so). I normally use 87 octane gas. I haven't noticed any loss of power when going WOT. I've changed the spark plugs twice. I've ran some Hot Shot Secret (stiction eliminator) in the oil at least twice so far. I'm hoping for a long life from my truck and if I don't get it, the wife will not be too pleased ;-) But if something major were to happen, I think I would end up trading it in. At this point, I don't really 'need' a full size truck and I'd probably downsize to something else. Ford doesn't have a smaller alternative right now, so unless they come out with something in the future I would like, I'd probably move to a GMC Canyon with a normally aspirated engine if I did switch trucks. I want to keep a truck at least 10 years before buying something new. Anyway, I love the power in my F150, but the older I get, the less I like washing a large truck and the more aggravated I am with tight parking spaces :-)

    You know that Ford is reintroducing the Ranger later this year, right?

    I heard some rumors about that, but we'll see what it is. So far (for a mid size truck), the Canyon looks really good for what it is. It wouldn't be much shorter for the config I'd want, but it would be more narrow which would make parking better.
